I've been enjoying the dry heat. It's just not as unbearably hot as it used to be, after 10 months of truly unbearable heat and humidity. We'll see how I do in the "cold" (I think it's supposed to get up to 70 today... I know, 90% of you think that's pretty warm... It's only in Florida that the weather casters start joking about mittens and hats when it falls much below 80 degrees).
Mae Bae's fox stolen shoe still hasn't been recovered. We did see the culprit, who we'll call "Swiper," hanging around outside with a handful of deer yesterday afternoon. Since he's not a whole lot larger than a house cat, he's not particularly intimidating. Unless your a shoe sitting outside the front door.
Sadie's taken to heart that we can point out places on the walk where rattlesnakes have been spotted (and where G.G. once made short work of one with only a rock and his walking canes, when it was near the house), and she's quick to remind us whenever Mae does anything she shouldn't be doing that: "When I was a baby I used to do that too..."
Now to head out into the cold...
I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!

I understand your coldness! We've had a week of 70 degrees F and this must be the coldest winter in at least 10 years. I'm not one to run the heater or get out gloves and scarves, but despite only been week 1 of winter, I'm doing both. Ofcourse, that 70 is our max but even the max is cold. The mimimums we're getting are freezing!ReplyDelete
You just can't be climatized to both 100 degree humid weather and 70 degree weather. It's either/or.
What I'd give for 70 degrees! It's above 90 here in AL now, with the usual summer humidity. I guess I'd better get used to this for the next 4 months or so. I'm looking forward to our visit to New England in early August; just hope the heat doesn't follow me!!!ReplyDelete
